    It used to be zero, without specific approval from the center manager.

    Agreed. Just ask the sup in the morning. If you have any sort of relationship with him, he'll probably OK it (provided its not too far). CYA always!

    I have never had a problem as long as I talked to them about it first.

    We were told to stay on our own area a few years ago. Your probably OK to go off a little bit if you run it by your supervisor. I sometimes hit the mall or a shopping center off the interstate on the way back in.

    as far as i know it's 1 mile, but as long as you don't go too far/abuse it and your numbers look fine, it's doubtful anyone will say anything.

    Its really comical at our center. With us being on PAS/EDD, I never know what city I will be in from one day to the next. Some days I stay in the south end of the loop I am in, and the next day I will be pushed way up into the middle of the loop, which is in a completely different city and county, so could you say that any where in the loop I drive in is considered on area. Im sure I would get different views from different sups.
